No. Coaching stuff and timing takes care of itself eventually. I look at things as win-win right now. ASU wins and the boys have some fun? Win. ASU loses and it creates some additional heat on Smith? Win.
I'd never actually root for ASU to lose for some greater good because a) it sucks for the student athletes, b) there's no guarantee the AD is paying attention anyway, c) losing - if the coach isn't going anywhere - doesn't help anything get accomplished (as some have pointed out with regard to draft picks in pros).
